In history, events of genocide have occurred and humankind has fought to stop them. Such horrific events have occurred across the world; possibly the most horrific event of them all was the Holocaust. Hitler led a dictatorship throughout the entire country of Germany and during this time he had devised a strategy to take over Europe. While ruling his Nazi state and having a world war, Hitler had been running concentration camps secretly throughout his controlled territories. In the camps he had organized a method to systematically eliminate all races he viewed as inferior.
The final solution was a plan by the nazi party on how they thought they could get rid of the jews to better the world. The plan was broken into steps. The first step in the final solution was making the jews feel apart from everyone by setting certain laws against the jews. These laws were the Nuremberg Laws. These laws targeted the jews and separated them from the rest of society.
World war ll was a very tragic war that resulted in 6 million Jews being murdered, The Nazis are to blame. Hitler not only wanted to kill the Jews, but torture them and force them to work in brutal conditions. Hitler's reason for the was to create a “perfect race”. If the Jews were not able to work they would send them to a gas chamber to kill them off quickly. Jews were beaten, whipped, shot, gassed, and burned.
Stanton stated, the process followed a specific set of stages known as “The 8 Stages of Genocide.” Hitler and his Nazi party followed these specific set of stages, and this is a reason the Holocaust should be considered genocide. “ When extermination begins, it quickly becomes the mass killing legally called genocide.” (Stanton 3). At that time we knew nothing about the Nazis' extermination methods.
Eleven million lives were massacred in one of the world’s darkest moments attempting to create a perfect race. In 1944 Germany began to lose in World War II, Adolf Hitler's final solution aimed the blame towards Europe's Jewish population, gypsies, and homosexuals. Together Hitler and the Nazi regime progressively deprived the Jews, gypsies and homosexuals of their rights. Many people were brought to labor camps by train. The conditions in the camps were inhumane.
The Nazis were able to construct this genocide by setting up concentration camps in Germany, as well as in areas that they have taken control of, such as Poland. The camps were used as killing grounds, or workplaces for non-aryan races, most notably the Jews. The environment of the workplaces would be horrific, and the only payment for the workers
"Concentration camps, that's what you call, uh, a camp what actually is annihilation...they annihilate people, actually. " This quote by Abraham Lewent sums up the story of the Holocaust and what an egregious time it was. The genocide of over six million people during World War II was the Holocaust. It all started with a man named Adolf Hitler and his rise to power and the German people who were desperate to believe anything they were told.
There were a mass number of supporters of this horrifying act. These advocates were in favor of purifying the Aryan racial and social ideology from Adolf Hitler. The Germans had made the Jewish their “scapegoat.” Throughout this time of conflict, supreme leader, Adolf Hitler resolved his conflict on what he thought was truly an act of justice. The resolution to the problem was the wipe out the entire Jewish population.
In 1993 the beginning of the genocide of millions of Jewish people began otherwise known as the Holocaust. The Nazis plan to exterminate all Jewish people was referred to as the Final Solution. During this time period the Jewish people were discriminated against by being segregated, stripped of their identities, and being taken away from everything they own and love and forced into concentration camps. Segregation was one form of dehumanization and Jewish people were impacted by this greatly. Shown in Document #4: Discriminatory Decrees Against the Jews.
“We are in the presence of a crime without a name,” said British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. The Nazis were always remembered for the killing of over six million European Jews, but at the time, there was no name for this wicked act. After the war, many of these Nazi war criminals were convicted of an act called genocide, a word that did not exist before 1944. Genocide is the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial, or religious group. Genocide occurs because of many factors that trigger this cruelty.

During this time 6,000,000 Jews were killed, not by war, but rather at the hands of Germany. Hitler believed that Jews were an inferior race and was a threat to German purity. After years of being mistreated Hitler had a plan called the Final Solution, which was the attempt to extinct the entire Jewish Population. Germany would accomplish this by concentration camps that were set up in Poland.
The Holocaust Before the Holocaust, Europe had about 9.5 million Jews. Marc states, "About six million Jews were murdered" In the year 1933, Adolf Hitler, became the leader of Germany, He believed that the Germans were racially superior convinced Germany to declare WWII all over Europe and controlled most of the countries in Europe. Although Hitler had Country's occupied by Nazi Germans, the Country, why was the holocaust one of the tragic events that has happened in history? It was the mass murdered and destruction of Jews.
